6 November 2015Auditorium, Porzellanikon Selb, Schirndinger Str. 48, 95691 Hohenberg an der Eger
10:00 to 17:00
On the occasion of the 75th birthday of Italian designer and architect Marcello Morandini, Porzellanikon in Selb will host a symposium titled Artistic Work built on a Logical Foundation to introduce Morandini‘s autobiography and to provide insight into the methods of his design work.
Porzellanikon in Selb has partnered with Morandini for many years. His works characterize the museum and the entire region. His participation in Rosenthal AG’s studioline is an early historic example of an attempt to integrate art and design.
Developed by Prof. Francois Burkhardt, the symposium has been designed to illustrate historic and current aspects of the connections and interrelations between art and design for which Morandini’s oeuvre is the perfect example. Current stances on the topic also will be discussed at the symposium.
